    1. Take a normal headline, and stick "How" or "Why" at the front.
    2. Replace the name in the normal headline with "this person" or some other vague description.

    "How this person turned around the Lakers' season"

    Bingo.

    From the company that once gave us the impeccable "Champagne with a twist of Lemon" headline upon the Dodgers clinching the 1981 World Series after Bob Lemon inexplicably pinch-hit for Tommy John in the fourth inning of a 1-1 game.

    It's amazing to see how the LAT, like other Tribune papers, were hemorrhaging jobs.

    Now, with a new owner, the LAT is expanding like crazy. Where did they find the money for people? Were Trib executives that cheap and trigger happy?

    It's interesting that this settlement came after secret recordings.

    In my journalism career, I was always open about when something was being recorded. It's what I was taught to do, it was the right thing to do, and it was more likely to hold up in court -- or be allowed to be used in legal proceedings at all -- if that was ever needed.

    I guess this settlement was accomplished because it actually was done through a "mediator," rather than in court, where that recording seems unlikely to have ever been allowed to be used, specifically because it was done unbeknownst to the other party.
